About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Named after a form of fun and fast-paced Brazilian dancing, Samba Steakhouse is just as refreshingly exciting, offering an intense amount of meats and wild portions of sides and salads unmatched by American steakhouses. You can feast Rodizio with never-ending meat selections, File de Salmao which is salmon atop banana puree, and more mouthwatering selections in the surroundings of giant leaves and colorful designs reminiscent of the Brazilian rainforest. Whether it's a family dinner or a big party, Samba is the most popular Mirage restaurant for group dining. Everyone can enjoy a buffet of familiar Latin American cuisine made with bold new flavors and served straight to your plate.

Samba has been at The Mirage Hotel/Casino for about 17 years which is about twice the average casino restaurant life expectancy. I've eaten there many times and my friends from Scottsdale were visiting and suggested we go there. That was very fortunate as I read on line and verified with our head waiter that Samba's will be closing at the end of August. We were just lucky that my friends visit wasn't next month. The restaurant has changed over the years. Originally they offered a single Rodizio dining choice that included all the meats, fish and pineapple (wonderful). Probably to lower their price point they currently offer two Rodizio experiences. They full one still has a wealth of selections although not as many as previously and the more limited Rodizio omits the salmon and filet mignon. All of us opted for the latter as there is no shortage of food choices.
The food was very good and the service was excellent as has been my experience. The margarita's have been scaled back in size but the taste is still excellent. Overall our experience was very good even with the noticeable cutbacks to control costs. We were all pleased with dinner and will miss Samba's.
Incidentally it will be replaced by a mid priced (for The Strip that is) Italian restaurant opening late Fall.

The service was excellent, all the steaks were delicious.
The caipirinha wasn't the greatest, but someone who has not lived in or visited Brazil may not have any reference point and find it satisfactory. The most disappointing part was finding out once we were inside and ordered our drinks that it was not traditional rodizio with the salad bar, dessert bar, and so on. I was really looking forward to that. Samba is closing August 31 - maybe this is why, I don't know.

We always have a good time when we go to Samba. It would be nice if the restaurant was enclosed so the smoke from the casino did not infiltrate the dining experience.
Service was very good always is.

The steak came around plentifully. Had my fill with no waiting. I appreciate the water choices. Last time we were given Fiji water and charged extra. This time they offered tap water first. I appreciate that. Will be back again.

It was a return Trip for us, usually service is great, it was not the case this time. Our server was a nervous wreck, made for a frustrating evening, food was great!

So impressed!!! We were served immediately after being sat and the food just kept coming. In past experiences with Brazilian Steak Houses, I felt like it took too long to get something new and then I would fill up on the first thing and be disappointed. Not the case here!!!

Every single thing we ate was amazing. We did the upgraded experience and the filet alone was worth it. We were served good portions and everything was excellent.

Highly recommend! We will be back!
